for the periods you could also try B6 ( it's a vitamin you can buy for cheap). Mine were random, they would either come day 25,26,27,28 every cycle was different.



Pre-seed I used but it didn't seem to make much of a difference with me. We tried for 2 years and had 2 losses before I became pregnant now.



I used pre-seed in a diva cup ( a menstrual cup but it can be used for TTC too) so after my husband and I would have sex I would put pre-seed in there and put the cup in and elevate my hips a few times while I had it in, I would keep it in like 24 hours tops.



A lot of couples can take a year or more to conceive so don't lose hope yet.



I also took pre-natals even when I wasn't pregnant just to have my body in the right zone for a baby.



Good luck!

I liked preseed, but only used the applicator thing once. I felt it put way too much in and didn't like that part of it. I ended up using it to play with my husband and, umm, 'applied' it that way! lol. We TTC for 14 months, 4 of those on Clomid, and the last cycle was on Clomid and preseed and got pregnant. In my box, it said that you can wash the applicators to reuse them.



Everyone's different, but I would NOT use BC to regulate your cycles. Lots of women have fertility issues after getting off BC, so I don't see how that would help. If your periods are all over the place, it's because you're not ovulating. When you ovulate, that is what causes your period to come about 14 days after. If you're not Oing, you're not going to be regular. I would talk to your doc about getting blood work done to see if you are Oing. They take blood on CD21 and test it. If you're not ovulating, preseed isn't going to help.

she can still be oing with irreqular periods, i know from experience because when i got off BC my periods were crazy (every 3 months) so i couldn't really track my ovulation so DH and i just gave up and didn't think about tracking or anything like that and just did it naturally and boom i was pregnant and found out when i was like 2 months cause i didn't even know lol. and now he's a happy healthy walking talking one year old. so trust me you still ovulate just as long as af is coming ur still oing.

Okay, I stand corrected. You're not Oing regularly, if at all. I had an AF and wasn't Oing. It just came every 21, 30, 26, 35, 14 days. :) OP, I would just talk to your doc about it or start temping. Have you tried that? A good website for it is Fertilityfriend.com.
